it's seasonal

'That Afternoon Breeze'  20x20" oil pastel;  Kathleen Faulkner

In these warm last days of summer
I am noticing the change
Light is different  moody

and the blackberries are so ripe
I try to pick them 
but they are soggy now from the first rains
others have missed the season
they won't make it past that lovely blush of pink

the leaves are starting to turn
night comes a little earlier 
and morning is beginning to show off 
it's dew covered webs

I'm lost in these thoughts
then that afternoon breeze 
comes dancing around my head
waking me up

sending me on my way.
